Ladies and gentlemen, Tyler Perry presents Presents.
Here at fiftyfootant.com, I’m always looking for hot deals. Some deals you touch and they’re lukewarm, other deals are warmer and may require an oven mitt so your hands don’t get burned. This deal I found today, well…you may need one of those silver gloves that forest fire fighters wear? Check it out:
STANDARD DEF 24 HOUR MADEA GOES TO JAIL RENTAL. Scoop it up!
Tyler Perry is taking his talents to outer space! At least, that’s his plan. While doing press for his latest opus “Madea’s Witness Protection” he talked about his love for the sci-fi genre and his intentions of making a sci-fi flick soon with blackfilm.com (that URL sounds gross).
“I’m actually working on a sci-fi movie right now.” However, he declined to give away much more in the way of detail, saying only that he was currently writing it and that he was “really excited” about it.
Not much is known about the film, but Mr. Perry was nice enough to give me an advance copy of the poster before the film is even conceived, a rare exclusive. Here it is:
Here’s Tyler Perry’s plea to fans to go see his new movie “Good Deeds” which opens tomorrow. The second paragraph of his message reads:
“GOOD DEEDS opens tomorrow, Friday February 24th, everywhere. It’s the opening weekend box office numbers that count in Hollywood. That is how they judge you, so if you can make it to the theaters this weekend, please do so. I never ever take for granted that you are automatically going to show up, but I tell you, I thank God that you do. I’m hoping that this time is no different.”
The message itself is innocuous enough, he only invokes God’s name once, but it’s enough. It’s like chum to the circling sharks coming to feast on his message boards. Most of the comments are words of love, praise and gratitude, message board wreaths lain at the alter of Madea. There’s also some pretty sweet racism, including this gem from a commenter aptly named “Mad as Hell”:
“I just received an E-mail saying your next MADEA MOVIE cast is WHITE! WHAT THE HELL? YOU JUST SENT OUT E-MAIL FOR US TO SUPPORT RED TAILS, AND HERE YOU GO WITH YOUR NEXT FILM AND CAST ALL WHITE FAMILY FOR MADEA WITNESS PROTECTION. WHAT THE H*** TYLER? YOU JUST ADDED FUEL TO THE FIRE.”
I’d recommend combing through the message board for a bit. It’s quite the read.
Finally, in honor of Tyler Perry’s latest film, (I’ve seen them all, I think…), I present you with this jpeg. Enjoy!
